Literature and Evidence Searching
Literature and Evidence Searching

If you would like me to run an in-depth literature or evidence search, I can search databases such as Medline, Embase and CINAHL on your behalf. I will discuss and devise a search strategy based on your search topic or research question and then send you a list of useful and relevant articles.

There are three levels of searches. Choose from:


Focused Search


Comprehensive Search


Systematic Review Support
